I’ve understood it perfectly
Since I was just a little tyke
If you can find a way to get to the top
No one can make you do the things that you don’t like!
And having power means you’re always right!

Of course if you’re wrong or different or weak
You might just end up in a cage
Perhaps you’ll think that’s a little unfair?
But that’s price that I’m willing to pay
You’ll be fine if you do it my way

Power, what you need is power
We gotta fight to survive, and to get more stuff
Power, what we need is power
Because you gotta be tough, for some life is rough
We can’t all be kings when there’s not enough

There’s nothing more reliable
Than the power found in my sword
That’s not to say that I’ve been looking very hard
Because power is its own reward
And it’s wonderful to be adored

I’ll admit sometimes it seems their love
Comes only from their fear of me
But that’s the way it has always been
I can’t imagine how else it could be!
I mean, we need to face reality
